With so many good movies coming out over the next couple months you may not know where to start, so I’m going to lay out for your viewing pleasure what I think are the best upcoming movies in 2015.
– Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse
What could possibly go wrong when three buddies (Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan) decide to join the Boy Scouts? When bloodthirsty, undead ghouls invade their once-peaceful town, it’s up to kindhearted Ben, quick-witted Carter and class clown Augie to save the day. With help from Denise (Sarah Dumont), a beautiful but tough cocktail waitress, the boys must put their scouting skills to the ultimate test to save mankind and earn their zombie-killing badges.-IMDB
Definitely not going to win any Academy Awards, but looks like a fun movie to check out around Halloween, or better yet wait for it to come out on video.
A cryptic message from the past leads James Bond (Daniel Craig) to Mexico City and Rome, where he meets the beautiful widow (Monica Bellucci) of an infamous criminal. After infiltrating a secret meeting, 007 uncovers the existence of the sinister organization SPECTRE. Needing the help of the daughter of an old nemesis, he embarks on a mission to find her. As Bond ventures toward the heart of SPECTRE, he discovers a chilling connection between himself and the enemy (Christoph Waltz) he seeks.-IMDB
The highly anticipated new James Bond movie, and apparently Daniel Craig’s last hurrah as the do-know-wrong spy with a license to kill. If you’re expecting car chases, gun fights, and beautiful women in exotic places, you probably won’t be disappointed.
Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, boxing champion Apollo Creed, who died before Adonis was born. However, boxing is in his blood, so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer. Rocky sees much of Apollo in Adonis, and agrees to mentor him, even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any in the ring. With Rocky’s help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen. – IMDB
Growing up watching the Rocky movies helped inspire my love of the sport and led me to become an amateur boxer at one time, so ever since I heard they were making another one and that it is about Apollo’s son I have been so excited. This is one of my most anticipated movies of the year.
– The Good Dinosaur
“The Good Dinosaur” asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? In this epic journey into the world of dinosaurs, an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of. –IMDB
The newest animated instalment from Pixar and Disney, this movie looks very cute and heartwarming. Yes I have a soft spot for these films, and if you say you don’t you’re not only lying to me, but to yourself. That’s the worst kind of lie… 😉
– Star Wars – The Force Awakens
A continuation of the saga created by George Lucas and set thirty years after Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi(1983). – IMDB
Probably one of the most anticipated films of all time, I’m expecting the new Star Wars to break all the box office records. Shrouded in mystery (I mean look at story description), this film looks amazing from its trailer, which also doesn’t tell us very much. Definitely looking forward to this (yeah me and half the planet).
Looking to recapture their glory days, two siblings (Tina Fey, Amy Poehler) throw one final party before their parents sell the family home.- IMDB
The return of the team up between Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Probably another one I will wait to see out of theaters, but with those two in it the movie is bound to be funny.
Will Smith stars in a dramatic thriller based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma, in a pro player.- IMDB
You can go to the movies on Christmas and just eenie meenie miney moe, because they all look good. I love Will Smith, and anything he does I enjoy (After Earth wasn’t that bad, It definitely was not good, but not that bad) so looking forward to this one as well. As someone who has played sports and scene concussions been down played by coaches and kids told to play through them, I hope this movie helps shed some light on this problem.
– Daddy’s Home
A mild-mannered radio exective (Will Ferrell) competes for the affection of his stepchildren when their freewheeling and freeloading father (Mark Wahlberg) shows up.- IMDB
Another hilarious team paring up again in will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. Enough Said.
– Point Break
A young FBI agent infiltrates an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of unprecedented, sophisticated corporate heists. “Point Break” is inspired by the classic 1991 hit.-IMDB
I was a little apprehensive when I heard they were rebooting such a classic action movie from my childhood, but from the trailer it looks like it might even be better than the first one. I will definitely see this one in theaters.
– The Hateful Eight
While racing toward the town of Red Rock in post-Civil War Wyoming, bounty hunter John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive prisoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh) encounter another bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson) and a man (Walton Goggins) who claims to be a sheriff. Hoping to find shelter from a blizzard, the group travels to a stagecoach stopover located on a mountain pass. After encountering four strangers, they may not make it to their destination.- IMDB
Another Tarantinomovie, this time a western. Looks awesome and your definitely going to get your money’s worth with over a 3 hour run time.
A story of a family across four generations, centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Facing betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, Joy becomes a true boss of family and enterprise in a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. – IMDB
I don’t have much to say about this one, just seems like it will be a good movie.
Honourable Mention –
The Ridiculous Six
December 11 Only on Netflix
The Ridiculous 6 is an upcoming American comedy film directed by Frank Coraci and written by Tim Herlihy and Adam Sandler. The film is a satire of westerns in general, and the classic 1960 western, The Magnificent Seven in particular. -IMDB
Big names, and a fun looking trailer, this is a Sandler movie that I’m looking forward to.
